Does God want your Religion?Does God want or respect Religion? The answer is NO. God wants a RELATIONSHIP with His people. Don't believe me? Well let's consider the Word of God.
Nobody followed the law like the Pharisees, they were diligent in their reading, they kept up the traditions, they seemed like perfect men and women. However, on the inside it was different. Here is what the Bible says:
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.
They were very religious people, but they didn't even see God when
Questioning God's KindnessA lot of people out there always question God's kindness. I've gathered popular questions and broke down for people to understand clearly.Questioning God's Kindness3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
If God is so kind, then why do bad things happen to good people?
Because God doesn't pick and choose who gets good things and who gets bad things. He reigns on the just as he does the unjust. Now the difference between the just and the unjust is that the just grow stronger in Christ for every bad thing that happens to them. How you may be asking. Well, simple. We call upon the Lord to help us and guide. We soon get through the trial, thus, grow stronger in the Lord. So in lemans terms, the just gets bene
The cost of calling God friendMany people today profess that God is their friend. But do they really consider Him a friend? God can be your best friend, the Bible says He sticks closer than a brother. But many people today don't know God on the personal level, they only seem to go to Him when they need something. How would you feel if one of your friends only talked to you when they needed something?You should not just pray when you are desperate, you should walk with Him daily.The cost of calling God friend2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
In order to call God friend, you must know Him. You must know His likes and dislikes. Now how can you get to know what the Most High God likes and what He doesn't? You read His word!
A True HeroA Hero is not one who has fame, glory, and every woman chasing after him...A True Hero3 years ago in Emotional More Like This
A True Hero does what is right, no matter the obstacles, and not even thinking about what's in it for him.
Being a Hero is doing what everyone thinks to be impossible and proving them wrong for the right cause.
A Hero doesn't care for what he will get in return, just to see a good outcome from what he has done for the world.
Jesus Christ is a True Hero.
He died for us.
And he didn't have to....
He chose to....
And he didn't do it to gain fame and glory, He did it for us...
So we can be saved from Hell.
And it's hard for you to tell him how much you love him?

There is a family from Africa that attend my church, and their youngest son (about 6 years old) was born with cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy is a general term used to diagnose brain malfunctions caused at birth. This young boy acquired it the same way my 12 year old niece got it. They both went through the birth canal when their mother had a streptococcal infection. The infection went to their brains and they became infected with streptococcal meningitis, which caused their brains to swell.

A True Christian does not calls Christianity a religion, but a relationship with God through Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. (John 15:14-15, Hebrews 13:5, John 10:27-28, Proverbs 17:17, Job 5:19, Psalm 37:39)
A True Christian does not do good deeds so that he/she can get to heaven (for through Jesus Christ, he has a place in heaven), but so that you can take care of you fellow man and to love one another. (Romans 3:9-31, John 15:17, Luke 10:25-37, Ephesians 2:8-10)
A True Christian does not condemn others for their sins for God did not sent his son to the world to condemn it, but to save it through him. (John 3:17, Luke 6:37, 1 Peter 2:2

No God - No Atheists"If there were no God, there would be no atheists." G.K. ChestertonNo God - No Atheists2 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
"That's stupid!" you say.
"Not true," says I. This statement, in and of itself, provides proof for the existence of God. I know that, if you are a non-believer, you will instantly dismiss this quote. Your beliefs are quite firm, after all, and what can shake them? You question the existence of God, but you don't really want an answer. An answer will prove you wrong. However, if you are willing to read on, I think you'll find that the question of rather or not God exists isn't one of fact or fiction. It's true, and I shall illustrate how simply using this quote.

Lately, as I've been getting closer to God, I've been getting slanders and blasphemed against by many people who don't even know me.
With what reason?, because I say that I love Jesus?
What is it that they are benefitting from all this?
Really, I laugh at all this because I know I'm right in Christ.
See, There wouldn't be any atheists and people going out of their way to bring me down if God didn't exist.
Why is it that they hate me so much, just because I decided to stand up and say: I LOVE JESUS!!!!!
That's proof that the Devil's real, as well as God.
